Student Veterans Center

The federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has adapted certain policies pertaining to your educational benefits in response to the current national emergency.

Specifically, there will be no change to your educational benefits or your monthly housing allowance through the Fall 2021 semester if your traditionally on-campus courses have been converted to online delivery. Please remember that your educational benefits cannot be processed, though, until you register for classes and submit your Request for Benefits form.

After registering for your spring 2021 classes, be sure and submit the Request for Benefits form online ASAP to ensure you don’t delay delivery of your VA benefits for spring.

Connect with Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care – Student veterans who are concerned they may have symptoms of COVID-19, flu or cold should contact Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care at 1-228-523-5000 before traveling to their medical center (Panama City VA Clinic).

Florida State University provides initiatives that foster a community of past, present and future veterans, raises awareness of veterans issues among campus and local communities, and supports student veterans through graduation and into rewarding careers and graduate-education programs.

Florida State University Panama City is committed to supporting our student veterans and military dependent students by assisting them in their request for certification of VA educational benefits, earned through their service and sacrifice to our country.

At FSU Panama City, our VA certification process has been centralized through the FSU Student Veterans Center in Tallahassee to ensure compliance and that services are in keeping with our commitment to the needs of our student veterans and military dependents. The request for benefits form must be completed and submitted each semester you are enrolled at FSU.

All FSU student veterans and VA benefit recipients have priority registration for courses following their first semester.
